German Hunter Pays €50 000 To Shoot 'magnificent' Bull Elephant

A hunter has shot dead what is believed to be the biggest elephant killed for "sport" in Africa for 30 years, according to reports.

The animal, one of the largest elephants ever seen in Zimbabwe, was killed on October 8 in an area set aside for private hunting, which borders the Gonarezhou National Park.

A German hunter reportedly paid about €50,000 for a permit to shoot a large bull elephant and was led by an experienced local guide.

Organisers of the hunt declined to name the hunter, who went to Zimbabwe to shoot the so-called Big Five of targets: an elephant, a leopard, a lion, a buffalo and a rhinoceros.
